Profumo--Judicial inquiry

Wilson: "Inadequate Step"
Harold Mac millan's solution to the Prcfamo a ff a i r
(which may yet cause his resignation as Prime Minister of
Great Britain) is to call for a Judicial Inquiry by L o r d
Denning. The Labour Opposition considers this outcome
weak and insufficient, and is pressing for a select committee
of M.P.s from b o t h sides of the House to examine the
security aspect of the scandal.- H,M Tihe- Ouee

Labour Leader Harold Wilson
described the affair as "a triumphant
success for Soviet Espionage", but
after a moving speech by "Mac"
last Mouday in which he said "
believe I have acted hononrably; I
believe I have acted justly; I hope
the House will bel eve I have acted
with dignity and prudence" the

Hardly a single British newspaper
supported the P.M., but Macmillan
spoke sportingly at an outside func-
tion during the week in support of
press freedom, saying: "It would
clearly be bad if the press was in
any way suppressed in its activities.
It does not exist just to print cross-
word puzzles, but to hit out hard."

wealth Visit." Previously, only two
kinds of visits from Heads of State
were known, the "State Visit" and
the "Lfficial Visit." For example,
(he visit of the King and Quecn of
the Belgians, just over, was a !'State
visi,'" wh le the visit of the Presi-
dint of the Ivory Coast last year was
an "Official Visit."
In the case of a "State Visit" the
guest, stay for two or three days at
the Palace with the Queen, and
drive in procession from the station
with the Royal family. There are
state banquets at the Palace and at
the embassy of the visitors. The
"Official visit" is less formal, and
mure political. A meal is taken with
the Queen, but the visitors are more
the guest of the Government than
the Monarch. They stay at their
Embassy or more usually, take a
suite at one of London's prominent
A "Commonwealth Visit" is
going to be a very different thing.
For the first thing, it is going to be
for longer it seems than two or three
days. Dr. Radhakrishnan will stay
for nearly a fortnight. He will drive
in state to the Palace, and will be
the Queen's guest there for a couple
of days. Then he will go to Scot-
land for the week end, where he
will stay at the Palace of Holyrood-

'family visit", and infinmtly more
o the taste of the Queen and her
visitorr than the stiffness of diploma-
ic protocol which is demanded
when "foreigners" come to stay.
The visit will focus public attention
in the Commonwealth, and on a
parucular member of it, which is
what the Queen undoubtedly wants.
Millions will see the President, and
vill, even for a fleeting moment,
think a litt e of what the Common-
vealth must mean. The Palace
will watch the visit with an eagle

For example, relations between
Britain and Nigeria have been put

this year, the President might care
to come to Britain on a "Common-

reassure Nigerian leaders that all the

visit, combining the grandeur of
State Occasions with the chance to
meet the ordinary man would give
the British public the opportunity to
demonstrate that this was so.

The Struggle Of Th3 Shirt

During the hot after-lunch hour of
3 p.m. on June 12 in Fort d v rance,
a West Indian girl aged fourteen was
passing the corner of Lamartine and
Schoelcher Streets, just in front of the
photographer's shop "Milon", when
she was hailed by a young ex-Alge-
rian Frenchman who demanded to
know why she was dressed in that
kind of shirt (a popular style ofshirt-
blouse recently imported by the bar-
gain department store PRISUNIC).
And what was the shirt like? It
was white, with a printed black
wheel in the middle a great suc-
cess with teenagers. since a cinema
show at which a "Twist" singer de-
monstrated it. The interrupter said
that this shirt was reserved to him and
his white friends, and that no Neg-
ro was to wear it; the fellow then
gripped the surprised girl and tore
the shirt, slapping her face.
A group of young Martiniquans

who hang around constantly before a
juke-box near Milon shop, seeing the
struggle, ran after the white youth,
who tried to escaped but got cuffed
He vanished into a nearby records
shop, which closed its doors; but a
big crowd of students arrived at the
corner in a few moments and began
to throw stones at the shop of refuge.
Police arrived and saved the white
people in the shop.
The Prefect of Martinique, Mon-
sieur Grollemund, was alerted and
left Government House to visit the
scene and try to calm the overexcit-
ed young people. He invited them
to come for a full clarification of the
incident at Government House, they
refused, and many shouted insults at
him. The prefectleft, the young
students moved over to Prisunic
shop to buy shirts, the shirt vendor
was soon submerged and the shop
was obliged to close its doors After-

By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter VI

It is treason to reveal Cabinet secrets but not, as far as
I know, treasonable to describe Cabinet Ministers in Sess-
ion or to use imagination about their thoughts and lives.
In the early days we were not properly a Cabinet at
all, but members of the Council of State, presided over by
His Excellency the Governor-General and attended by
official advisers, who were established Civil Servants. This
was supposed to be the final stage in an adolescence before
However we had our own precious way of being a
Cabinet even in those days. Before Council of State meet-
ings we held a private meeting and came to conclusions
which we usually (though not invariably) carried through
in full conclave.
On the morning of my appointment I did not observe
precisely the features of my colleagues, and it took me a
few days to a s s i g n them to their appropriate Ministries.
Only one colleague out often was already known to me; the
eleventh was, of course, the Prime Minister. Five of the ten were
Ministers with Portfolio, my St. Lucia host La Corbiniere be-
ing the Minister of Trade and Industry. The Minister of
Finance was by far the most arresting of all the personali-
ties, both in aspect and apparel. I could not without con-
fusion casually call him Robert (my husband's name), so I
always referred to him mentally as Finance. The Minis-
ter of Natural Resources and Agriculture bore my father's
Christian name, causing me further family confusion, so I
called him privately Farmer. The Minister of Communi-
cations aid Works I called simply 'Works' in secret, and
it was entirely appropriate since he appeared to work hard-
er than any, of us, living on his home territory and carrying
.a load of tesponsibility fpr both federal andjlocal politics.
He had enough conflicts to cause schizophrenia, but he was
a I wa y s,smiling handsomely, urbane and good tempered.
Of the other'five, we used to say jokingly that t h r e e of
them wee satellites; an elderly Senator from St. L u c i a
whose son was the Chief Minister there; an ailing Member
of Parliament from the P r i m e Minister's homeland; a
youngish Senator with flickering probing eyes from the nest
of the Finance Minister; the island of Antigua, unrepre-
sented otherwise, despite a powerful Chief of State-
had provided a youthful ex Editor and last mentioned but
dearest to me, there was Teacher who, like Farmer, came
from Jamaica.
With his acute sense of the personally appropriate, the
Prime Minister had placed Teacher within the portals of
my Ministry. There Teacher occupied an office as an in-
dependent colleague with responsibility for the Welfare of
Migrants in Britain. It was a perfect assignment. Teacher
held the distinguished position of leader of the Senate; he
was also an ex-headmaster and this (to the only Minister
in the Commonwealth w i t h education in her portfolio,
who had never been to a routine West Indian school) was
a Godsend. Everything about Teacher was ideal
his strong and mature attitude,
his fine face, very dark and honest, his beautiful
forthright speech, and his capacity for being a good neigh-
bour. This capacity was tested to the full, since Teacher
and his splendid wife were also my nearest Ministerial
neighbours in Federation Park.

Minister cut it down. How would you like me to undo a
miracle, teacher you a religious man!" But teacher
said he was a Baptist and did not go in for that troublesome
sort of miracle.

Fisherman Res-
cued From
Abel Rennie, a young fisherman
ofLa Plaine, narrowly escaped
drowning when his little fishing boat
overturned. Rennie was bookfish-
ing some yards out to sea in comn-
pany with two others when he felt a
"big bite" on his hook. He tried
to pull up the fi s h i n g line, but
could not: his two friends, in an ef-
fort to help, capsized the boat The
two men swam ashore but when they
looked around, discovered that Ren-
nie was missing and a boat believed
to have been theirs floating just about
the area where Renme went down.
While they expressed their'sorrow and
panned to get to the boat which
they imagined had refloated, the
water bubbled 30 ft. before them,
Then a strange fisherman rose trom
the water. He had dived in and
hooked Rennia before he sank. After
some minutes of artificial respiration
Rennie regained consciousness. The
stranger explained how he had seen
the incident and hurried over.
Interviewed by our staffreporter he
said, "Well I fink vere boat sank to
Asked whether it would not have

Following Dr. Solomon's feature address, there were two other : K-
lectures on the role of libraries. Later there was a panel discussion on .p i
"Caribbean bibliographical material, an appraisal of its source, location : -... ,:i
and value to the region", chaired by Dr. R. I. Rmain During the
afternoon session, Mr. John Makn, British Council representative, spoke .a .-.-.. s a
on "Libraries and Librarianship, an international concept." Another i
panel discussion on the "Effectiveness of library services," wound up the m
day's proceedings.
The Sunday session took place at the Public Library (this library is i
separate from the Central Library and is purely a Port- of-Spain library,
situated in Woodford Square). Talks were given by Mr, V.E Bruce, A ..
Director of Personnel Administration, on the Trinidad Civil Service and
Mr. V.K.Diaz, Ministry of Labour Training Officer, on Staff Relations.
The last speaker was Dr, Michael Beaubrun, Mental Hospital Superintend-
ent and well known psychiatrist, who showed how interpersonal relations with
in the nations is something good. He outlined how the race problem increas-
ed rapidly, and how the best way to deal with this is to learn and respect the
ways and customs of life of other nationalities Get to mix together by
participating in each others interests such as festivities, games, and other hob-
bies. The girls and boys should be mixed, so that they can learn each .

of better help to the community in the future.

Is Religion
Dawbiney Panel
Ex amines
By Herald Literary Club Reporter
Last Thursday evening t h c
Dawbin:y Literary Club, pursuing
this term's theme oa '-A look at
Philosophy and R:ligion" he d a
panel discus on on the topic "Is
Religion Nccessary', Members of
the panel were Messrs. Havis
Shillingford, Wendell Lawrence
and Jenner B. M. Armour, who
also served as Moderator.
The panel first sought a working-
definition of relig on, which was
accepted as the service and adcriion
of God and in addition as the
general organizational aspects of
religious activity.
The first question posed was
"what part does reogio.i play in the
everyday life of the average man:"
There was general agreement that
the motivating factors giving mean-
ing and purpose to everyday life
centered immediately around such
things as a happy home, reasonable
success in business and a good job,
rather than around deliberate and
conscious thought of religion. But

it was agreed that the moral values
injected by religion subconsciously
influenced or provided guidance
for these motivating factors.
The panel agreed that for the
poverty-stricken masses who
were demonstratively the most ardent
followers, religion also served as a
soother for their destitution by hold-
ing out the hope of ultimate happi.
ness. But it was pointed out ilat
these same masses were easily swayed
away from religion, ;iid that h story
has shown that new ideologies find
the most fertle ground among them.
The reason advanced for this was
that the strength of religious founda-
tion was directly related to
educational advancement, At this
point the panel felt that there was no
one morereligious than the religious
intellectual and no one more
irreligious than the irreligioas
Had religion done any harm and,
cr g o o d ? was the next ques-
tion put before the panel. Religion
cannot do any harm, but abuses have
been committed in the name of reli-
gion, stated one member of the pa-
el. The other members could not
accept that religion c o u d do no
harm, and refused on this question
to disassociate religion from abuses
committed in its name.

Finally the panel considered whe- up with religion. Many other inter- comit
their religion can be replaced, It testing questions were raised before om I
was conceded that any other system the discussion was brought to a close Roundup
which could inject identical moral at 10.30 p.m.
values could substi-ute for Religion.
The panel adm cted to difficulty of President Romulo
finding such a system. I.LO. Walkout last week ordered l

The moderator then invited com-
menis from tI-e floor. One mem-
ber of the floor visualized that in a
society that was wholy intellectual,
religion would not be necessary, be-
cause there reason would be para-

But countless people who read this column have voiced wholehearted This Mag
agreement in the "critical" tone. They urge "constructive criticism'' and
then supply the column with countless facts, figures, stories, rumours scan- *
dais, etc. that would fill a book! But in writing "So They Say" we care-
fully check the stories, the facts that we are given and at the same time
attempt to give a fair coverage of those points of interest to the most people.
No, we are not frightened to write that insurance companies consider Roseau
a "fire trap," for example, or that Dominica can never jbin a Federation t
until she imposes a laud tax on her citizens. It may hurt.the proud resid-
S-- ofi omiica to read about suc' things but it istime these "prou
residents" woke up to the fact that this is the Twentieth Centuty.
Some people ask us where we got our courage from to write so "imper-
tinently" of the. miserable mess of passing a warrant at Customs! Yet
several days or weeks later those persons who ask the question got the answer
when they, themselves, are fortunate enough to have to "pass a warrant"
-then they see! .
We must all be critical in order to progress. Complacency, content-
edness never cleaned up dirty streets, enlarged educational facilities, or gained
a deep-water harbour. If our planners were "contented" a few years ago,
there'd be no electric lights io Roseau. If the people were "contented" to
carry their bananas on their heads, we would not need "feeder roads."'
Wholesome discontent with your present surroundings, your job, your in-
come, your family's welfare are the seeds of progress for better living. . and i
to be discontented is to be critical of the present,
Recently an American attacked this column in the matter of bringing
new industry to Dominica. He said we would be "exploited" by the "fore-
igner', and added that the people themselves contain all the necessary quali- S
ties to build a better Dominica. Bat if this is true why are three-fourths of
all the people ill-clad, iil-housed and ill-fed? The illiteracy rate is shock-
ing, the sanitary conditions are appalling, the standard of living unbeliev-
able low. . yet you are afraid of being "exploited"'' How silly can you
get? Do ycu mean to say that a three-mi;lion-dollar pineapple canning fac-
tory will "spoil,' the island? X till a steady, dependable paycheck for a
thousand families ruin Dominica? Yes, it will ruin Dominica for some of i
the big estate owners who get their labour for a pittance because there is no
competition for labour! But for every person in Dominica who does not
want "change,' aud "progress" there are a thousand who do. and one day
these people will get enough education to get this for themselves. Its plain a
evolution at work; time, that irrascible fellow, will bring about change in
Dominica the same as time is bringing change to the rest of the globe.
And if we don't have the men now who can bring industry to Dom-
inica or who wai t to bring it. then industry will seek us out- it will take
years longer but it wil be done. The amount of laws and old-fashioned
ideas that will need to be changed in the interim would stagger the bravest of
us but these too will topple in the face of the demand of the people for a
better way of life.

Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Girls & Boys,
So much has been written about the late Pope john
23rd that I shall not go into any details ofhis life and works in this letter.
But there is one thing I world like to draw to your attention and that is
the influence that one person can have on others.
This infuence can be either for good or evil, It is not how long one
is in a job but how one's life, in any position one may be, can influence
the lives of others. Pope John was already an old man when he was elect-
ed Pope. Many people thought, but why elect such an old manly How
long again has he io live.
See how in such a few sho-t years he influence the ideas and the
way of thinking of so many people all over the world.
He was a man who loved mankind and wanted to see everyone live
in peace and unity. That is why he wanted to make everyone see the
other man's point of view, in other words understand each other.
He wanted us to live as Christ would like us to live. Christ came
on this earth and preached Peace and Goodwill to all men.
Pope John's life is a lesson to all. At school, at home, at work see
that the example you set is a good one. So many children are spoilt
through the bad example of others. His life is a challenge too, to those of
you who are in positions of authority, in your classes as prefects, captains
of teams, those who are blessed with better homes than others. It is their
duty to lead and influence others in the r ght way. When you ar: placed
in a position of trust, others look to you for guidance not only in what you
say but in what you do which is so much more important.
In history, we have read how one man in his time bas influenced
the thinking ot millions of people all over the world. Hitler was one ex-
ample. Karl Marx was another.
So revolve from this day that you will behave in such a way thar you
shall be a good example to others.
Cherio till next week.
Love from Auntie Fran.
